The Greenville Drive announced on Thursday that they had named a new general manager for the Upstate's single A team.

Eric Jarinko was promoted from his former position of assistant general manager, the club announced.

The 31-year-old has been with the organization since their first season in 2006 and is a graduate of Clemson University.

"I equate this move to the path our players take when they begin their professional baseball careers in Greenville, striving to reach Boston. When I began my time with the Drive eight years ago my goal was to become a general manager, and I'm thankful to have realized that opportunity now with the Drive – a truly Major League operation," Jarinko said.

The Greenville Drive is the South Atlantic League affiliate of the Boston Red Sox and have just completed their eighth season in Greenville.
